## Decent Puzzler

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

My first is a number, my second another,
And each, I assure you, will rhyme with the other.
My first you will find is one-fifth of my second,
And truly my whole a long period reckoned.
Yet my first and my second (nay, think not I cozen),
When added together will make but two dozen.

How many am I?

Gouranga Sep 02, 2002 You deserve a slap for making an exact copy of the already existing riddle. Shame on you Naveen! Hang your head in shame. shop-a-holic Sep 03, 2002 .......still don't get....... flynn Sep 25, 2002 Hmmm. I am so smart, I end up being dumb. I worked out the math bit. i.e. It had to be 4 and 20 to satisfy both of the arithmetic clues. But, I couldn't see how 4 and twenty rhymed. Never thought about score. Good one! yogi Sep 25, 2002 Score is not a number! It's like calling fathom a number...one two three four five fathom seven.... I don't think so. cliff Sep 25, 2002 i got it i thought it was pretty easy but its a good one. oh yeah and yogi you are just mad hahaha. oh yeah and 4/20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh (user deleted) Oct 20, 2002 this is too easy, you don't even need to know that they rhyme but; i,m sure that's only a throw off.
